Mimecast enhances Office 365 protection against advanced threats and data loss
Though Microsoft Office 365 provides unparalleled functionality and benefits, Office 365 protection against targeted threats and potential data loss may not meet the expectations of every enterprise.
Many Office 365 customers make the mistake of assuming that moving to the Microsoft cloud platform automatically protects them against all manner of threats as well as data loss, corruption and malicious intent. Unfortunately, the platform offers only a single layer of Office 365 data security, potentially exposing users to devastating threats like spear-phishing, impersonation and ransomware. And Office 365 email backup and recovery technology is limited, failing to provide the flexibility and user self-service features that many organizations require.
In order to augment Office 365 protection, many organizations have turned to a variety of third-party solutions for security, archiving and continuity. While many of these solutions can be effective, managing multiple point solutions only makes managing business email more complicated and expensive. That's why so many organizations ultimately choose to improve Office 365 protection with Mimecast.
